First, I just want to say that our hearts go out to everyone impacted by this global pandemic. We extend our heartfelt wishes to anyone who is sick for their full recovery.

Our Safe Workplace Plan

We want to maintain a safe workplace and adopt practices to protect the health of our employees, customers, visitors, and others.  We have asked all of our employees to cooperate in taking steps to reduce the transmission of communicable diseases in the workplace.  

  > Employees are encouraged to follow CDC and WHO guidelines like staying home when they are sick, washing their hands frequently, and using sanitizers in high touch areas.
  > We are deep cleaning the buildings every Friday evening as employees go home.  We support natural disinfecting by keeping the buildings closed from Friday evening until Monday morning.

  > We are taking preventative actions like workplace social distancing through the limiting of third party facility access, limiting inter-facility employee contact, and many employees are working from home.
  > Employees are encouraged to use telephone and video conferencing instead of face-to-face meetings as much as possible.

Good News! ABC has Reduced Shipping Lead Times
Thursday, October 31, 2019

Our industry has been busy the past couple of years. ABC has seen record-breaking orders due to high demand for our products. At the same time, unemployment rates have plunged, making it challenging to hire machinists and welders. These trends pushed ABC’s shipment lead times beyond what we and our customers want.

ABC has implemented several programs to address this. These are bearing fruit. For instance, since July we have been quoting 3” – 5” heat exchangers and 1-round filter housings at seven-to-nine weeks lead time. We’ve also reduced lead times for other products by several weeks.

Although we are hiring critical positions, our strategy has not been to simply hire a lot more people. This would raise costs and put pressure on pricing. Rather, we are attacking the issue by increasing throughput via manufacturing efficiencies that also yield improved quality and employee satisfaction.

You can be assured that our entire organization is working for you to reduce lead times while maintaining the high quality you have come to rely on from ABC.
